X-men Supreme Issue #92: Starcrossed Part 2 is LIVE!
It’s another race against time in the pages of the X-men Supreme fanfiction series. Professor Charles Xavier is dying. Lilandra Neramani’s life is now the target of the Shi’ar Empire’s Imperial Guard. Her life now hangs in the balance and the X-men must find a way to help their mentor as he fights a losing battle with his cancer. It’s the kind of struggle that can’t be found anywhere else except X-men Supreme. The Starcrossed arc will force the X-men to make some difficult decisions. And from these decisions, the stage will be set for the home stretch for X-men Supreme Volume 4: Politics of Fear.
There has been a lot of upheaval in this fanfiction series lately. It has been so dire and destructive, unleashing monsters like the Cambrian while characters endure immense emotional upheaval.
Between Professor Charles Xavier dying, Wolverine leaning painful secrets about his past in Japan, and Rogue and Nightcrawler departing from the X-men, it seems like hope is becoming increasingly rare in the X-men Supreme fanfiction series. But make no mistake, there is still hope in X-men Supreme. All is not lost and there will be reason for optimism by the time X-men Supreme Volume 4: Politics of Fear comes to an end. It may seem hard to contemplate now, but part of the process in developing this fanfiction series is to follow cycles of struggle and triumph. Part of what makes the X-men strong and what fuels the success of any superhero team is their ability to emerge from conflict stronger.
That doesn’t mean the Shi’ar will make it easy for them. The Starcrossed arc isn’t just about another cycle of struggle. It will more definitively establish the role that the Shi’ar will play in the X-men Supreme fanfiction series moving forward. It has already led to some significant revelations about Lilandra Neramani. There are other revelations to come, but not in this arc. The Shi’ar have some very different motivations in X-men Supreme compared to the comics. That story is going to unfold in various ways, but first the X-men have to overcome the Shi’ar in Starcrossed. And that means taking on the Shi’ar Imperial Guard.
